School Vouchers: Views from a Special Education Perspective
Taylor, Shannon S.
Journal of School Choice, v1 n3 p29-53 2006
The study of school choice for special education students brings together several important pieces of legislation which are separately the focus of high interest. This paper reviews the features of the three major special education bills (the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, section 504 of the Rehabilitation Acts, the Americans with Disabilities Act) in the context of the Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses of the U.S. Constitution and so-called Blaine Amendments in various state constitutions. The principles of special education are discussed, and current voucher programs are examined to determine their compatibility with special education. The litigation that has resulted from this growing voucher movement is discussed and current and future trends are presented from a special education perspective. (Contains 3 notes.)
